Interesting official looking (read non-amateur) film about the ground breaking to build the big old bridge. You could easily pinpoint who was the mayor and all of that. When they get to the groundbreaking, there's even some beauty pageant contestants on hand for beauty! Heck, we even have what looks to be a civl war widow! After that, it's the same footage, but condensed, then we briefly explore the layout and construction of it.
